If you feel that your application for a Super Visa is not going well, you should realize that there are hundreds of others who are also facing the same problem. Even though it is touted by Canadian immigration officials as one of the easiest visas to obtain, there are still many applicants who fail to be approved for a Super Visa.
It pays to know about other people’s experiences; the testimonies of those who have been rejected are especially insightful. You can often find these testimonies in forums or in the comments sections of blogs about Super Visa applications. It would help if you take the time to read some of these. They will help you to learn about and anticipate the kind of problems that you may face yourself.
Testimonies of Rejected Applicants
What seems to frustrate rejected applicants the most is the fact that they had to spent a large amount of money just to be able to meet the requirements for a Super Visa application. The processing fees for the application are non-refundable, and of course the Super Visa Insurance is also very expensive. It can cost more than $3,000 per applicant, and must be paid in full in advance. Applicants are fortunate if their insurance policies have a full-refund clause in the event of a visa rejection; as otherwise, it is a complete waste of money.
The main question of rejected applicants is this: after being rejected for a Super Visa, will it still be possible for them to qualify for one in the future? The logical answer is of course yes, as applicants are welcome to reapply. However, the testimonies of many rejected applicants, who reapplied for a second or even third time, indicate that acceptance after an initial rejection is unlikely. Sometimes, the reasons for the first rejection are not easy to correct. For example, if a visa is denied because the income of the sponsoring children or grandchildren is not above the required cut-off based on the number of people living with them under the same roof, it may not be possible to correct this deficiency.
If the reason for the rejection is because the applicant has a pre-existing medical condition and fails the medical examination, there is a significant possibility that he will not be granted a visa unless he recovers from his condition, or at least becomes healthy enough to pass the medical examination.
Learn to Anticipate Possible Problems
The advantage of reading about other people’s experiences is that you can get a clearer understanding of the entire process. You will then have a more realistic picture of what to expect from your own application for a Super Visa. The knowledge you gain from your readings will also serve as a warning. If the rejected applicants describe situations similar to your own, you will then be able to anticipate what needs to be done before applying for your Super Visa.
